  Assessing the pollination efficiency of different species of bees on buzz-pollinated plants of agricultural significance
  Dr M Vallejo-Marin, Prof P Willmer
Application Deadline: 4 January 2019
Bees provide essential pollination services in both natural and agricultural systems. The recent and worrying decline in bee populations around the world has highlighted the importance of understanding the interaction of flowers and bees during pollination.
  Cuckoo bees as sentinels for pollinator decline (DICKSLU19SF)
  Dr L Dicks
Application Deadline: 31 May 2019
This PhD project will test whether cuckoo bees can be used as sentinels, to identify areas where wild bee pollinators are in trouble and provide an early warning system for ‘unhealthy’ agricultural ecosystems.
  How many flowers to sustain wild bees?
  Dr J Cresswell, Dr D Horsell
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Streatham Campus, Exeter EX4 4QJ. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Trade-offs between pollinator community richness and honey production in upland semi-natural habitats.
  Dr D Burslem, Prof R Van Der Wal
Applications accepted all year round
The pollination services provided by bees and other insects are vital to persistence of Scotland’s semi-natural habitats, and they sustain important rural industries including production of crops, soft fruits and honey.
  Epigenetics of neonicotinoids in an important insect pollinator
  Dr E Mallon, Dr E Rosato
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
This project will contribute to assessing an important threat to food crop pollination by quantifying, for the first time, the epigenetic effects of neonicotinoids on bumblebees.
  Invasive bees, invasive disease. The ecology and evolution of parasites associated with bumblebees in South America, Japan, and Europe
  Dr S Barribeau, Prof S Paterson
Application Deadline: 9 January 2019
Bumblebees are crucial pollinators in both wild and agricultural systems. Bumblebees are also facing widespread declines, in part due to infectious diseases, which challenges the stability of wild floral communities, and the animals that depend on them, and food security.
  The impact of light at night on bee-plant interactions
  Dr N Hempel de Ibarra
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Biodiversity and ecosystem services: Birds, bats, bees, and cocoa trees
  Dr A Welch, Dr D Evans
Application Deadline: 14 January 2019
Human populations are increasing rapidly and consumption is intensifying. Land is being cleared at a dramatic pace and biodiversity, which provides critical ecosystem services, is being lost at an unprecedented rate.
  Growing up to help: understanding the developmental plasticity of social behaviour in cooperative societies.
  Prof S Townley, Dr S English
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Location. University of Exeter, Penryn Campus, Penryn, Cornwall TR10 9FE. This project is one of a number that are in competition for funding from the NERC Great Western Four+ Doctoral Training Partnership (GW4+ DTP).
  Mine sites as hotspots for insect biodiversity PhD (Funded)
  Prof R Ffrench-Constant, Dr J Bennie
Application Deadline: 18 January 2019
Professor Richard ffrench-Constant, University of Exeter. Dr Jon Bennie, University of Exeter. Dr Ilya Maclean, University of Exeter.
